Is Python describe() a metadata?
In Python there is a function called describe()， which provides the statistical summary of each column of the dataset, so is the data provided by describe() a kind of Metadata? Thank you so much!
I think you are right
In general, some methods/functions and ALL attributes return metadata
No that's not metadata but pandas.describe() provides descriptive statistical summaries of the actual data.
Metadata is data about the file e.g. if you loaded in a 'data.csv': the filename, file size, file type, date created would be a subset of the metadata. The moment you have loaded the data into the Pandas DataFrame you are dealing with the actual data
